Are you ready to dig in?
Build up an excess of the right hair growth nutrients, and eliminate internal pollutants:
Let me share a simple idea with you:
Your hair grows from your head.... “Ummm...obviously..”
I know that sounds simplistic.
The really obvious point that is often overlooked is:
In order for your hair to grow long and healthy, your body first needs to be healthy.
When your body is starved of nutrients (when you eat crappy, low nutrition foods) your hair and nails are the first area that your body starts stealing nutrition from.
Because your body can live without nails.
It can even live without hair.
But it can't live without the brain, or the muscles, or the heart, etc.
If you're low on nutrition your hair and nails don't eat…
If you're not feeding your body with the right nutrients your body won't have enough excess nutrients to feed your hair.
Ensure 80-90% of your diet is vitamin dense food.
- Cruciferous vegetables, including broccoli, cauliflower and kale.
- Legumes, like beans and lentils.
- Leafy greens, including spinach and chard.
- Healthy fats, from avocado and nuts (unsalted).
- Wholefood supplements like cacao powder or nibs, maca and super greens powder.
Make sure they're fresh. And that they're mixed (consumed as a meal).
Certain nutrients are absorbed easier when they're mixed with certain other vitamins.
Processed foods, like pasta, bread, snacks, bacon, sausage, salami, cereals, sugar, pastries (you know, all the good stuff) is hard for the body to digest and contains very little nutrients compared to the volume of calories.
So you'll feel full, and you might even pack on fat. But you'll be nutritionally starving.
And so will your hair.
These foods, including meat, are also rich in toxins.
And, we we've already discussed;
Toxins kill your hair gains by putting stress on your body.
The form of iron from vegetable sources has been shown to be superior in quality to that of the iron from animal meat.
This is still controversial because of the push back by the meat industry.
And if you don't believe me;
Do your research.
I'm just telling you what I know to be true.
Limit exposure to environmental damage and pollutants:
This is dead simple.
Like I mentioned earlier:
One of the main causes of hair thinning is toxicity.
A common source of toxicity (other than your diet) is your direct environment.
The environment you put your hair into...
By this I'm talking about two things:
When we're bleaching and colouring our hair. orusing harmful hair products or shampoos.
These processes and products are loaded with toxins. That build up over time.
And causes your hair to break.
And minimise the amount of colouring/bleaching of your hair.
That's part one. This is part two...
You need to make sure your hair has the right environment for growth.
Get plenty of clean, fresh air.
Oxygen is super important for our bodies.
We use oxygen for everything.
Make sure you get some exercise.
Through exercise is one of the main ways that our bodies are able to detoxify.
This is one of the main reasons why people who exercise look so damn beautiful.
Their skin comes alive, and their hair becomes more healthy.
Exercise also helps you relax.
Have you ever wondered why people look so damn good after coming back from a long holiday?
Plenty of fresh air, plenty of sun, a bit of salt water, and lots of relaxation.
De-stress and re-lax
Stress is just about the most harmful thing you can do.
To yourself AND to your hair.
It's seriously bad!
Think about it for a minute;
Stress is a state of heightened awareness and alertness.
The body has been trained for many thousands of years to trigger stress when it's in dangerous situations...
...like you're about to be eaten by a bear.
In a stressful situation like that;
Your body will feed all its energy into processes related to fight/flight.
- Heightened awareness
- Protective mechanisms
- Muscle tension (to allow you to spring into action)
That's a very healthy state...
...if you're being chased by a bear.
But over long periods of time;
It's damaging to your body.
It doesn't feed energy and nutrients into other areas...
...like hair growth.
So...those areas begin to "lack".
So we need to kick-the-stress!
Which is normally more easily said than done.
Here are a couple of simple ideas that do wonders at relieving stress:
- Exercise; Take up a regular yoga class a few times a week and/or adopt another form of exercise like weight lifting. This can be massively stress relieving.
- Work shorter hours; Ask yourself, is your job really worth going bald for?
- Drink less coffee; Coffee stimulates your adrenal functions and if consumed in large quantities or over a long period of time it can cause adrenal fatigue and hormone imbalance.
- Meditate; Learn to resensitise and understand your deeper distress in your body. By understanding this you will naturally gravitate away from situations that cause you stress and harm.
- Sleep; Master your sleep. And go to bed earlier. Watch less TV. Sleep more deeply. This is hugely stress relieving.
Sometimes stress is a necessary evil.
You've got to get a job done by a certain deadline.
Or you're being attacked by a bear...
You need to decide when enough is enough.
How to get thick hair by managing hormones
Alright it's science-time!
Here's the thing:
Your body might be producing too much estrogen;
An overflow of estrogen converts to testosterone...which is the same hormone that causes men to go bald!
You might have a lack of estrogen.
Your body isn't feeding enough energy to hair-production.
Get your blood tested by a doctor to find out what's causing the imbalance.
That alone can create a world of difference.
Not just for your hair growth...
...but for how you feel generally.
Avoid damaging hair extensions
Hair extensions are a great way to get thick hair overnight. But...They come with a price. That's right: Applying hair extensions is one of the most damaging things you can do to your hair. There is a type of hair extensions that can give you the hair you always wanted...without the sacrifice.
